Skillet used to be very active and try to get out of the cage running around ect but now he sleeps all the time and seems like he don't really care to get out and run around. Also he's lost some fur a big patch on his lower back like a quarter I examined the skin and it looks to be smooth and white. I'm just starting to worry he's not been acting the same. Any advice would be appriciated.

How "big" is the size of the furless patch? (Quarter size, dime size, etc.)
Is their any fur missing from around his nose?
What's the temperature in the room he's in?

The patch is about the size of a quarter, but his nose looks fine we keep the room at 70degress. He don't really squirm that much anymore when I grab him.
